Monday saw another blogging bootcamp for journalists in London, which was great - almost too great, if that’s possible. Because far from the one hour timeframe, Monday’s attendees were so eager to stick around, asking questions, and learning more, that the last journalist didn’t leave until nearly five hours after he had arrived. His name is David Tebbutt, he’s a tech journalist, media trainer and software developer, and now he is a blogger.
We certainly didn’t mind having David and others stick around; far from it, we find such curiosity and enthusiasm extremely refreshing. And when people are clever enough to pick up the implications of blogging that reach far beyond mundane diary blogs and politicians trying to appear to be in touch with their constituencies, we think: “A ha! Got another one!”
Today, we got another one - more than one, actually. But for now, welcome to the blogosphere, David Tebbutt.
